The Tale of Raw Head and Bloody Bones by Jack Wolf

A breakout first novel by author Jack Wolf, this book is equal parts Sleepy Hallow meets American Psycho--- not as far as gore, mind you! (Title non-withstanding) Following 17th century anatomist-in-training Tristan Hart, magic meets the age of reason in a strange love story dripping with sadism, following an unreliable (and seemingly quite mad) narrator. Very memorable!

Ben Miller, author of The River Bend Chronicle

From a striking new talent comes this evocation of an eccentric family’s tangled connections—between themselves, an unlikely cast of locals, and a seldom-documented urban Iowa, one not of cows and cornstalks but of thrift stores, TV dinners, and bridges spanning the muddy sprawl of the Mississippi River.

The Boy Detective Fails by Joe Meno

This great book is equal parts melancholy and humor, as ex-boy detective Billy Argo adjusts to life in the larger world. Meeting a cast of memorable characters, young and old alike, Billy attempts to make sense of his own modern mysteries such as falling in love with a mysterious woman on the bus, and the death of his sister Caroline 10 years ago. (Sound strange?
